Overview

About the property

1600 Sq Feet 3 Bdrm, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen With Washer/Dryer, Daylight Basement.

A stone walkway leads down from the parking area to a large covered patio with a private entrance to this very nice 3 bedroom 1 bath daylight 1600 sq. ft. walkout basement. The Vacation rental is the downstairs part of the house only. The main family room has 9 foot ceilings with beautifully finished wooden beams and lots of wood trim and wainscot. It has a full kitchen (newly remodeled) with an electric stove, microwave, frig, and washer and dryer. The 3 bedrooms all have comfortable queen beds and are decorated in mostly Montana style. The beautifully stained concrete floor is heated and very comfortable to walk on and there are area rugs in all the rooms. There is high speed internet, a 37 inch flat screen TV with a Wi Fi DVD player, and an older but usable pool table with a ping pong table cover. The back yard has a walkway that leads to a fire pit that overlooks the tree surrounded meadow below and sledding hill.

Our very private but convenient location is 4 miles south of Whitefish, 1/4 mile off Hwy 93, and about 9 miles north of Kalispell. This makes shopping or dining in Whitefish, Kalispell or Columbia Falls an easy option. Whitefish Mountain Resort (Big Mountain) is less than a 1/2 hour drive and Glacier National Park is about 40 minutes. The airport is only 10 minutes away.

About Steve and Lori Pleasants

Steve and Lori Pleasants moved to Montana in 1993 to raise their 3 boys and to open a chiropractic office in downtown Whitefish. We have always enjoyed a country lifestyle and had horses, cows, and chickens on the property while we homeschooled our boys. We built the basement to be a comfortable place for our boys, and the large family room became a gathering place for them, their 3 cousins and many friends.

Steve and Lori Pleasants purchased this house in 1998

We had everything here we could have wanted. we made many trips around the area while we were here, but we also had fun here playing ping pong and watching movies. We even finished a whole puzzle. Again many thanks. Popeye our dog thanks you too."

Great place, lots of room, great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The location worked out well even though lots of activities were in east Glacier. The rooms were spacious and clean and perfect for a family. We had space for together time, and space for individuals as needed. Thanks for sharing your space with us!

Very spacious and comfortable with all needed amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family visit in a very comfortable house. All the amenities you need with some extras. We enjoyed playing pool and ping pong each day. Came back each evening to make family meals. It allowed for a lot more family time. I would highly recommend this home rental. Lori was very friendly and hospitable! Thank You for the wonderful memories we created here!

Comfy Quarters, Hospitable Hosts!

  • 4 of 5

This rental is the ground floor of a two story house backed up against a hill. It is located very close to Whitefish. The owners, Steve and Lori, were welcoming, and the quarters were very comfortable for our party of three, plus a dog. The living room included overstuffed furniture, a pool/ping pong table, and a large television with Netflix. The kitchen was well equipped (we even did some baking) and the bedrooms comfortable -- the master Bdrm even had a bearskin on the wall, very fitting for Montana. And the groomed backyard was spectacular, looking over a small meadow where deer and other critters roam. Great stay, no criticisms. 4.5 stars

The place was extremely clean, quiet, cozy and had all the amenities you needed. Great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the dark, but Steve and Lori's directions were extremely helpful, and eliminates any confusion. Check-in was simple and the place was immaculate. They has all essentials for a trip. The proptery was gorgeous with vadte green spaces and views of the mountains. It was nice to be a little bit more secluded with nature. The place was very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable (I have never slept so well in a rental bed). Steve And Lori were great hosts that were so generous in returning our pet cleaning fee, when out animals were no longer able to make the trip. It was greatly appreciated and I would highly recommend this place.

Clean, bright, and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Lori were excellent hosts, available when needed but not intrusive. They gave us excellent suggestions on things to do in the Whitefish area and Glacier National Park. The property is clean and we'll maintained, and with all the windows and large glass door, it hardly feels like you're in a basement! The beds were comfortable and perfect for our group (3 rooms with queen beds for 3 couples). It's just minutes from Whitefish, close to Kalispell, and only about 30 minutes from the Apgar Visitors Center in the park. We had an amazing time, thank you Steve and Lori for providing such a great place to stay!!

Whitefish is a year around resort community primarily known for its local ski resort Whitefish Mountain Resort, known by locals as Big Mountain. It provides great uncrowded skiing in the winter as well as many summer activities such as hiking and zip lines. There are also many other winter activities available such as snowmobiling, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, ice skating, and dog sled riding.

Our close proximity to Glacier National Park is by far the biggest summer time attraction to our area. It provides spectacular mountain scenery as well as wildlife viewing, hiking, backpacking, fishing, rafting, and swimming, you name it.

Whitefish Lake has a great local beach for swimming and sun bathing and is a popular recreational boating lake. Many other lakes, rivers and streams provide boating rafting and fishing opportunities that are endless.

The town of Whitefish is a popular destination for many reasons. Our family friendly atmosphere has a wide variety of dining including many excellent restaurants. The small resort town atmosphere also provides an active night life with several bars, casinos and nightclubs. Shopping is also popular with many clothing stores, galleries, sporting goods, and jewelry stores. Whitefish Lake Golf course provides 36 holes of top notch golfing and The Wave Aquatic Center provides indoor swimming and water slide for the kids when the weather is not so great. It also has a large fitness area and all the amenities of a modern fitness club.

Other activities in town include a twin cinema as well as two live theatres.

In addition to all the outdoor activities, the surrounding area has many attractions for kids and adults, including a water slide park, live bear park, house of mystery, and an outdoor maze and activity center, and many whitewater rafting and horseback riding facilities'.
